4–7 May 2015 : Montréal, Canada

Welcome to WICSA 2015!

WICSA is the premier gathering of practitioners and researchers interested in finding out about and improving the state of practice of Software Architecture. Since its inception, WICSA has functioned as a working conference, where researchers meet practitioners and where practicing software architects can explain the problems that they face in their day-to-day work and so influence the future of the field. In addition to traditional conference keynotes and paper sessions WICSA includes interactive working sessions where practitioners and researchers discuss their experiences to understand the current state of the field, and identify opportunities to make a difference in the future.

For WICSA 2015 the theme is Architecting in context – exploring the relations between software architecture, organizational and global, ever-changing and pervasive contexts. This conference looks at how context influences architecting and determines novel architecture solutions. Architects work in many different contexts and these contexts have an impact both on their design decisions and their organizational responsibilities.

This year, WICSA and CompArch 2015 are co-located.
